When most of us think of a framer's
tools, we imagine long-handled hammers,
saws without guards, and topheavy
nail guns. When we think of
calculators, we're more likely to imagine
Cal-Tech, theoretical physicists,
and Revenge of the Nerds.
But whether you cut roofs in the
tracts or build high-end custom
homes, there is a calculator that can
significantly improve your speed and
efficiency as a framer. And that kind
of result goes straight to the bottom
line. It is appropriately named the
Construction Master II.
Originally developed in the early
1980s, the Construction Master traded
on its ability to work in feet, inches,
and their fractions, and to convert
these to yards, square feet, cubic feet,
and board feet.
